Ahh... a little Costello to let you know that I am continuing to fill you in on our background story (aka the book....get it??).
How did we find out that we were with child, you ask? Well read on...
So the minute we were officially hitched I started thinking about babies. I didn't go off my birth control until a couple months later though (I couldn't see wasting good BC). So we got married in October of 08 (can't believe it will be two years in a month) and by February of 2009 we were 100% TTC. To say that I was anxious would be putting it lightly. I have had ovarian cysts in the past and I had been told that they may impede my fertility, so I didn't know how long we would have to try. Actually, I was pretty much convinced that it was not going to happen (I can be a Debbie Downer sometimes) and that we would have to have some medical intervention.
So every month I would chart my days and we would try, but inevitably Aunt Flo would come to town. Then in September I had a horrible episode of cramping and almost passed out from the pain. I went to my gyno and she said that one of my cysts had ruptured. I didn't really think anything of it. October came and it was a super busy month and I didn't have time to chart or really think about the situation.
November was pretty much the same craziness, when I suddenly realized that I hadn't gotten my period. Now I do not get regular periods off birth control and there were a few times that I thought I was late, took a test, and then the next day there was my period...so I tried not to get too excited. I talked about it with Brian and we decided to wait a little longer before I got a test (because normally I bought a test if my period was 6 minutes late and we would go in debt if I continued with this trend).
So we went out with friends that Friday night and I ordered a beer so as not to raise any suspicions, but only sipped it, I don't know I just had a feeling (but again, I had had these "feelings" before). Then Saturday, November 21st, we woke up and I just had to take a test first thing. I took a digital test because I was sick of thinking I saw a faint line when there was really nothing there. I sat there waiting for what seemed like an eternity (it was less than the three minutes) when I decided to take a peek. I had to look at it about a thousand times, and then I called Brian in. "Brian???" He came in and looked at the test. "Do you think I should I take another one?" "Yea I guess". Needless to say over the next couple of days I took about 8 more pregnancy tests (yes, I am ridiculous) and they all said the same thing....PREGNANT!!!!!!!
